Clinkenbeard’s Gustafson tapped to answer questions about casting and prototyping fundamentals
From press release
When David Mantey, editor of Product Design & Development, needs to inform his readers about what constitutes the fundamentals of rapid prototyping and casting, he often goes to Clinkenbeard Project Manager Ron Jr. (Reg) Gustafson for answers.
Mantey tapped Gustafson again in March for the publication’s April issue of PD&D when Mantey had Gustafson answer the following questions for the benefit of PD&D readers and workers in the design engineering marketplace: Casting 101. What do you do? Why should I use it? What should I look for when choosing a casting service? What new materials and alloys are available to design engineers?
Gustafson’s responses can be found at the PD&D Web site that houses the April publication: http://bit.ly/aE2JTS.
